2009 Warsaw (Poland) World Olympic Collectors Fair
from 05/29 to 05/31/2009
Arriving at the airport of Warsaw, I go to my hostel by taxi. I meet my friends collectors of all countries already arrived. The next day, we are drived by bus from the hotel under a heavy rain to go to the sports museum where the fair is held. This is a modern and functional building, very nice. We take seat for the day in the room which is reserved to us. Welcome gifts are offered by the Polish NOC to all participants. The evening, we are invited to a cocktail reception whith the presence of JA Samaranch, on the terrace of the Polish Olympic Committee building.
The next day, in the afternoon, at the invitation of the organization, we start visiting the city by bus. With our Zanirato friends, then we stay in town and we dine there. The historic center is very pleasant, despite the persistent rain. At the hotel, the Formula 1 Robert Kubica is exposed.
The last day, I visit a flea market with Marc. I even find some Olympic memorabilia! By late afternoon, we dine in a restaurant near the hotel.
